Ren is a 55-year-old cement worker from Cambodia. She has seven children and six grandchildren, and enjoys watching Thai TV dramas in her free time.
One year ago, Ren developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry and cloudy vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ren learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 12, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after surgery, I am able to continue my work and see clearly.”
